Simply put, litigation is the whole process revolving around taking a legal action. Whenever two differing parties pursue legal actions against each other, to either defend or enforce a legal right, such parties are said to be involved in a litigation. The work of a litigator entails a wider scope, which keeps them fully engaged in stringent litigation exercises. In some cases, litigators may solve a dispute between parties before it even goes to trial, therefore, most litigators rarely spend much time inside the courtroom unlike other attorneys do.
One of a litigator’s duty is to manage and oversee all the phases of the litigation process. Such phases include, but not limited to, investigations, discovery, pleadings, pre-trials and trials, settlements as well as appeals. The litigation field is unambiguously varied, with a wide range of opportunities and cases ranging from criminal to civil, to corporate suits.
